Episode 10: Setting Goals for Your Business

Our last episode of the season! Thank you so much for following along with us in this first season of Scrap Paper! We've learned a ton and have had so much fun along the way. Thanks, Scrappy Babes!

In this episode, we're talking all about goals. What goals are (hint: not to-do list items), why they're important, and how we can use the data we have and/or our intuition to set them. We use this episode to map out our goals for the 4th quarter of 2017 and 2018 as a whole. We hope this episode will inspire you to think of goals as big dreams that you're going to do the work to actually achieve!

Episode 6: Being Nice & Being Scrappy

This episode is all about the delicate balancing act between how we're perceived online and how that perception influences the way we interact with people. In the world of Instagram, sharing about yourself online can bring about a sense of intimacy with your followers -- which is a good thing! But sometimes that intimacy can lead to situations where you feel like your boundaries are being crossed or a follower/potential customer is asking too much of you. How do you handle that?

Episode 5: Social Media & Ego

We spend this episode getting real about social media, specifically Instagram. Our theory is that everyone comes to social media wanting connection, but sometimes our ego gets in the way. We chat about how we so often equate our self-worth with our social media presence, how we really feel about our number of followers, and toeing the line between creating content that’s post-able and creating content because it’s post-able. We hope this episode speaks to your woes about social media and helps you feel a little less alone in the #instastruggle. Don’t forget: you’re more than your numbers.
